the pressure on romney in these presidential debates, the first one a week from tomorrow, guys. october 3rd, thanks very much. bill clinton on mitt romney and the 47%. the former president talks to cnn's pierce morgan about the republican nominee and why the debates could make all the difference. >> announcer: this is the day. the day that we say to the world of identity thieves "enough." we're lifelock, and we believe you have the right to live free from the fear of identity theft. our pledge to you? as long as there are identity thieves, we'll be there. we're lifelock. and we offer the most comprehensive identity theft protection ever created. lifelock: relentlessly protecting your identity. call 1-800-lifelock or go to lifelock.com today. thank you, mr. speaker, uh, members of congress. in celebration of over 75 years of our government employees insurance company, or geico...as most of you know it. ...i propose savings for everyone! i'm talking hundreds here... and furthermore.. newcaster: breaking news. the gecko is demanding free pudding. and political parties that are actual parties!
presidential debate. jessica, thanks. also in new york city mitt romney speaking at the clinton global initiative just ahead of the president. romney focused on foreign policy as well vowing he would link u.s. foreign aid to trade with help going to developing countries that remove barriers to investment and trade. he also discussed unrest in the middle east and said he would have a different approach than president obama. >> a lot of americans including myself are developed -- excuse me, are troubled by developments in the middle east. syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. our em bass dor to libya was assassinated in a terrorist attack. iran is moving towards nuclear weapons capability. we somehow feel that we're at the mercy of events rather than shaping events. a year from now i hope to return this meeting as president having made substantial progress towards the forms i've outlined. i also hope to remind the world of the goodness and the bigness of the american heart. never apologize for america
, if romney does not deliver a total knock out blow, the debate will largely be either ruled a draw or a victory for the president. everyone says romney has a low bar now because he is behind, blah, blah, blah, and obama is so much more popular. in terms of the media coverage, by the elite, his bar is high, not low. it will be ruled that because he is so, supposedly, so far hype, if he doesn't when by five lengths he will have done himself no good. the question is what the public will draw its own conclusion. we do not know until we see the fallout after the debate. >>neil: the view that the nation is fairly even in the popular vote but in the swing states, the president is padding his lead, the media seems to focus on the latter rather than the former. >>guest: it is perfectly fine looking at the horse race to say the president is ahead. what is not fine is to say every word that comes out of mitt romney's mouth is a behalf and every word that comes out of the president's mouth is golden. that is what happens when the president says three or four dumb things in the "60 minutes" int
and president ahmadinejad. >>> not to be outdone in the foreign policy debate, mitt romney took the stage, too. he was at the clinton global initiative earlier this morning. former president clinton introduced him. he took a swipe at the obama administration by noting the current state of fairs overseas. >> syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. the ambassador to libya was killed in a terrorist attack. iran is moving toward flunuclea weapons capabilities. we feel like we're at the mercy of events rather than starting events. >> mr. romney reiterated that -- >>> it's the call everyone is talk about. packers versus seahawks. should the players union pull the members off the field to support the nfl referees? i'm barack obama and i approve this message. romney: "is time to stand up to the cheaters" vo: tough on china? not mitt romney. when a flood of chinese tires threatened a thousand american jobs... it was president obama who stood up to china and protected american workers. mitt romney attacked obama's deci
debate sessions with chris van holland and campaigned yesterday in the state of virginia, keeping romney's comments about the 47% in his line of attack. >> he attacks the 47% of the american people who he says paid no federal taxes. and he attacks, he, romney, attacking someone on taxes? woah. that's like me attacking someone for being passionate in politics. >> also yesterday here in new york city, president obama addressed the united nations. the general assembly there. the president strongly condemning the anti-islamic video that some say caused the unrest in the middle east, but he also says it did not justify the attack on the united states embassy. >> i know there are some who ask why don't we just ban such a video. and the answer is enshrined in our laws. our constitution protects the right to practice free speech. i accept that people are going to call me awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. and we must agree, there is no speech that justifies mindless violence. >> in the last couple of weeks, he pointed out those are probably not the result of a
of the economy or foreign policy, i think he will lose. if we have a very small ball debate where the romney campaign spends two days criticizing president obama for not having the following six meetings and what about the sentences he said, obama thinks he can ride that to a narrow but clear victory. i think he's probably right. so i think the key is to mange the big -- make the bigger arguments against president obama. jon: you were a big advocate for the candidate service of paul ryan -- candidacy of paul ryan before he became mitt romney's vice presidential choice. has he brought the kind of gravitas to the ticket and some of these issues to the fore that you were hoping for? >> yeah, i think so. look, in the two-and-a-half weeks after ryan was picked, the romney/ryan ticket narrowed the gap from about four points to one point. it's opened up again to close to four points because i think at the convention and afterwards the romney campaign has lapsed into a kind of pre-ryan campaign. i think ryan's clarity about the choice ahead is helpful, his criticism of the replacement rests this mor
members before sunday's game. >> with the first presidential debate just five days away, mitt romney's handlers are trying to lower expectations. the two candidates go toe to toe wednesday night in denver. romney's longtime adviser beth myers releasing a memo outlying reasons why the gop challenger is likely to finish second. she says the president is "a uniquely gifted speaker and one of the most talented political communicators in modern history." >>> two more battleground states leaning towards obama. according to the latest cnn polls. in nevada likely voters favor the president by three points over mitt romney, 49% to 46%. meantime, in virginia, the president has an even wider lead, 49% to 44%. >> sledgehammer smash and grab. the fbi has released dramatic video of suspects who robbed a saks fifth avenue store. investigators say he ran in the store an hour before closing time and used sledge hammers to destroy a display case and $5,000 reward for these suspects. >>> all clear after a bomb scare caused a brief evacuation of a terminal. they found a grenade-like item inside the lugg
have for mitt romney given the state of the election campaign right now? >> well, i think, you know, the debates e very important for him. >> crucial? >> i think so. and i think if he's going to double down on that 47% remark, that will cause difficulties bee no know that the overwhelming number of those people work and have children and the reason they don't pay federal income taxes is the median income is as low as it was in 1995 now, and until the current eleion season, republicans and democrats crpported both the child tax it andhe earned income tax credit. this is a rejection of basicmor bipartisan policy to support workingfamilies. it is not a bunch freeloaders. >> there he goes. piers mo bringing up the 47% from the secretly videotaped moment in that fund-raiser back in, what, may. but no big sis hs going straight for that 47% line. noand quite interesting because bill clinton on my show tually a few months ago had, of course, supported mt romney over his record of bain capital and refused to join inhe obama super pac bashing of romney over that. >> that made news. >> it mad
's not good at that. he's great at giving big speeches but i think romney can do very well over three debates. >> he's got -- you know, the president has, i think, kind of a contempt for sound bites. >> that's a great way to put it. >> what i would say back to that is "mr. gorbachev," tear down this wall is a sound bite. sometimes big ideas have to be torn down into sound bites. >> we have not. jfk in his inaugural speech. sound bites. >> that's just another way of saying clarity of thought. i think we're still in a place where if president obama had to build his library in the next, you know, x number of years, what would you -- is there a short phrase you could put on the wall? lots of paragraphs, and that's right. but there's also, you know, something to be said for a pithy way of talking. >> and the problem is there is a statement they put on the wall, but they change it every day. >> yeah. >> they're responding to barack obama's mistakes instead of saying it's economy stupid or are you better off than you were four years ago, even if they had borrowed from reagan anded with that every da
obama in the debates, you know. basically say come on, romney. we've heard enough of your b. s. right? and what you're saying is just lies about welfare. lies about taxes. lies about everything. and call him out. >> caller: in a poll last night they showed on tv, 83% of americans are going to watch the debates. >> bill: whoa. >> caller: that's a huge number to watch the debates. >> bill: i find that hard to believe. but still -- >> caller: registered voters. >> bill: if it was on ed's show, i believe it. i tell you what, the first debate particularly, tim, will be very -- there will be a huge audience for the first debate and obama's gotta be really out there. really slugging and he can't take any crap from mitt romney and can't let him get away with the weasley statements and romney -- can't get romney get away with just being like foggy right and not saying what he really intends to do or what he really plans to do. he's got to force -- you know what? i would like to see him debate like rick santorum did
. but mitt romney has 90 seconds in the opening of that first debate to make a difference. if you call me after that first opening i'll tell you who will win the presidency. >> frank luntz, thank you. this morning presidential candidates are protesting the nfl's replacement referees. monday's night game is still a hot topic. jeff glor is here. >> reporter: the great refer yes replacement went from manageable in week one, messy in week two and out of control in week three. it doesn't guarantee it will end right away. >> the game's final play. >> reporter: if you thought you heard lot from football fans about monday's mess of a call, imagine being the coach at the losing end. >> i received more text messages than emails than i did after the super bowl. >> reporter: the impact of this decision. >> the call stands. touchdown. >> reporter: a disputed touchdown that became the most controversial moment. the league unleashed a statement saying the result of the game is final. >> the nfl comes out with a statement saying don't believe your lying eyes. it was the right call. they explained the pro
is a status quo economic model president. >> reporter: today romney kicks off a bus tour in battleground ohio. this is the last full week of campaigning, before the presidential debates begin and take over the candidates' attention. president obama was off the campaign trail in new york for the annual united nations general assembly. but he stopped by abc's "the view" with the first lady. >> i've just got a different vision about how we grow an economy. i think, barbara, you grow an economy from the middle out, not from the top down. >> today president obama and mitt romney will speak at a clinton global initiative in new york, then it's back to the campaign trail for both candidates. sunny, john, back to you. >> i thought it was fascinating about the interview was that the ladies suggested michelle obama would be a great public officer. i agree. >> she said, you know, i don't have the patience for something look that. >> she certainly knows herself. >> she certainly knows herself. her husband knows her as well. he pointed that out. >> she was not offended in the least. she said "yep, i don't

with the audience. will it resonate with voters? i'm sure that's on governor romney's mind, too. >> sure. well, you know, one of the things i think you are going to see him doing today is trying to pivot this debate about foreign policy back to jobs and trade and opportunity. i think he will make the argument that when we -- when our aid program should be built towards developing free market partners around the world, helping -- nations and embrace the free market and embrace trade. that in the long run helps american prosperity and creates jobs here at home. the man who is hosting him, president clinton, when he came into office, one of the first things bill clinton did was join with republicans to pass the north american free trade agreement over the objections of democrats. he worked with -- got a majority of republicans and minority of democrats in a coal toygs pass that p president obama has not passed a single free trade agreement of his own making since coming into office. i think you will see a subtle distinction between drawn. >> what do you mean of his own making? because he has -- trade
